g saw Su Mujin had nearly finished, so he began to explain.

“Mhm, I’ve eaten my fill.
Shixiong don’t worry, I’ll work hard to cultivate so I can protect you.” Although he regretted that he wouldn’t be able to eat meals prepared by his companion after this, Su Mujin understood that improving his cultivation was urgent. 

“Very good.
First I’ll teach you ‘Water Repulsion’.
Are you prepared?” With an upright attitude, Gu Feng strolled over to the spiritual tarn.

What do I need to prepare? Su Mujin inspected himself, before suddenly realizing. Of course! That’s what I need to prepare.


Gu Feng waited half a day for Su Mujin to reply.
Turning around, he saw Su Mujin starting to undress.

Gu Feng: “.
.
.” 

“We’re just practicing ‘Water Repulsion’, not taking a bath.
No need to disrobe.” Gu Feng said as his face darkened.

“Got it, shixiong.” Su Mujin tied his belt again and tidied up his clothes.
He was silently critical. Shixiong really angers too easily.
Whatever, I’m too magnanimous to hold it against him.

After Gu Feng explained the incantation to Su Mujin, he took the lead and jumped into the spiritual pool.
A barrier of air about a foot thick formed between him and the surrounding water.

“Jump in! Just remember to recite the incantation while you leap, and circulate spiritual energy around your body.” Gu Feng turned to face Su Mujin as he spoke. 

Previously, Su Mujin would have leapt in without a second thought.
But, after having nearly drowned yesterday, there was a shadow of fear in his heart.
As he hesitated, his pulse sped up.

“Didn’t you say you would protect me just now? Don’t tell me you’re too scared?” Gu Feng deliberately strung out the last couple syllables, his voice becoming magnetic, and channeling the spirit of that mythical skirt chaser Dengtu Zi.

“N-not afraid .
.
.” Su Mujin stutteringly spoke.
His heart raced, but it wasn’t due to fear that time.

He jumped down while silently reciting the incantation and circulating his spiritual energy.
As long as his shixiong was present, Su Mujin discovered he could access seemingly boundless strength and courage. 

Su Mujin succeeded without mishap.
It was just a simple spell, after all.
If he wanted to accomplish bigger things, he needed to master this first.
Gu Feng would not have the time to personally teach Su Mujin everything he needed to know in life.

“You’re doing well, keep it up and follow me.” Gu Feng spoke and took Su Mujin’s hand, leading him to the bottom of the pool.

 


As soon as he had entered the water, Su Mujin discovered he and his shixiong were each surrounded by a bubble.
But, between the two bubbles, there was a link where the two of them held hands.
Realizing that, Su Mujin’s recently calmed heartbeat once again picked up speed.
Originating from shixiong’s grip on his hand, a scalding heat slowly traveled across his body. Ever since yesterday when shixiong gave me air, I’ve felt so strange.
Could it be that shixiong poisoned me with that breath?

Gu Feng felt Su Mujin’s palm begin to sweat, and thought Su Mujin was frightened.
Gu Feng paused and placatingly said: “Don’t worry.
I’m taking you to the bottom of the pool to locate something.
If you see anything that glows or sparkles, you must tell me.” 

“Okay .
.
.” Su Mujin sensed that they were sinking deeper and deeper into the tarn, but it felt different than yesterday.
Today he wasn’t scared at all.
No, he actually felt joyful. I really must have been poisoned.
I’m certain of it!

Gu Feng was oblivious to Su Mujin’s mood.
He wholeheartedly threw himself into looking for the lingyao at the bottom of the pool that could purify spiritual roots.
His previous incarnation had used the lingyao as a gift to repay Gu Yunxi, but in this lifetime, he would never repeat that mistake.
Gu Feng planned to have Su Mujin use it as soon as he found it.
The tarn was abundant in spiritual qi, and it was the most suitable place to purify spirit roots.

After who knows how long in those depths, he finally caught a glimpse of a distant glow.
Gu Feng grew ecstatic, and pulled Su Mujin along to swim over to it.

As they drew close, they saw a glowing plant, similar in appearance to a lotus.
It glittered alluringly in the water. Finally found it. Gu Feng relaxed and finally let out the breath he’d been holding in.
It was exactly that ‘marrow purifying lotus’ that could wash away extra spirit roots. 

“Xiao Jin, this lingyao can purify spirit roots.
You can eat it and use it to wash away your fire root.
Then the quality of your remaining wind root will be improved.
Got it?” Gu Feng carefully plucked the flower and presented it to Su Mujin.

Su Mujin was dumbfounded.
He had no idea how to respond.
There was only one lingyao here, and his shixiong didn’t even hesitate when handing it over. Am I really deserving of this kindness?

“What? Do I need to feed you myself?” Gu Feng asked and reached out to lift Su Mujin’s chin.
It appeared he really would feed Su Mujin.

“.
.
.
Didn’t mean to inconvenience Shixiong.
I’ll eat it right away” Su Mujin’s face was red as he took the lingyao.
Downing it in a single gulp, he opened his mouth to show he’d completely swallowed it. 

Gu Feng’s eyes glinted, observing Su Mujin’s response. Sure enough, every time I act overbearing and intimate, Su Mujin immediately does what he’s told.
This method isn’t bad.
Seems I can continue using it.

“The process will be long and painful, but you must persevere.
Otherwise, all this effort will be wasted.
Xiao Jin, you can do that, right?” Gu Feng deliberately leaned in close to Su Mujin, his lips brushing Su Mujin’s ear as he uttered those words.
In order to achieve his aim, Gu Feng had no choice but to abandon his moral integrity.

“Shixiong, don’t worry.
I will expend all my effort and not disappoint you.” Su Mujin was beet red.
At that moment, he likely would have climbed a mountain of knives without the slightest hesitation, had Gu Feng asked it of him.
